Welcome to Reception At Belvedere Infant School

Reception Outside Learning Area

We are very lucky at Belvedere Infant and Nursery School to have an amazing, newly built outside learning environment. In this area we have a large sandpit, performance area, reading hut, role play areas, water exploration area, English, Maths, Construction and Creative areas. This large space allows the children to transfer their learning and skills from the classroom, to their outside activities. 

Safe ~ Happy ~ Learning

Children in Reception access the seven areas of learning through a wide range of adult and child led activities. Children are encouraged to use their senses to explore the world around them, learn through their play and develop their speech, language and communication skills in our language rich environment.

Independent Learning Opportunities

Teachers set up the classrooms with a range of exciting and engaging activities that are practical and multi-sensory. Activities are linked to the half termly topic or the key text for the week. Children have a wide range of resources in the classrooms that they can access freely to support their independent learning activities. Activities are set up to provide children with opportunities to practise their speaking and listening skills and encourage them to practise reading and writing throughout the day. 

Spring 1 - Traditional Tales

This half term we will be learning all about traditional tales. We will be using a range of wonderful multicultural tales from around the world to support our teaching and learning in this topic. Below you will find images of some of the stories that we will be sharing with the children.

This week we have been focusing on our speech, language and communication skills. We have been retelling the story in our own words and using art and craft materials to create the characters from the story to support our retelling. We have been thinking about the actions of Goldilocks and discussing whether or not we think she behaved in the right way.
